Big Whiskey's Franchising Welcomes New Franchisee in Huntsville, Alabama

Big Whiskey’s roadmaps up to eight new locations within the next 12 months for a total of 23 Big Whiskey’s locations.

June 14, 2023, Huntsville, Alabama - Big Whiskey's Franchising is thrilled to announce the signing of its latest franchisee, Terry and Aimee Sims, in Huntsville, Alabama. The dynamic duo has secured the rights to establish three Big Whiskey's American Restaurant & Bar franchises in the bustling Huntsville metropolitan area. After careful consideration, Terry and Aimee are eager to embark on this exciting venture and tap into its tremendous potential.

The Sims have extensive experience in the restaurant industry, owning 13 QSR franchise locations. They find the Big Whiskey’s Restaurant & Bar a strategic addition to their restaurant portfolio.

“We are so excited about working with a high potential brand like Big Whiskey’s. We love the passion of the organization, the modern menu and the growth vision of the company. We can’t wait to get things rolling to maximize the potential,” stated Sims.

With existing operations in Missouri, Alabama, Oklahoma, and Arkansas, Big Whiskey's American Restaurant & Bar is already making waves in the industry. The brand has plans to expand further with multiple locations set to open in Florida, Alabama, and Missouri. In 2024, Big Whiskey's will proudly launch its second location in Hoover, Alabama, along with new establishments in Davie, Florida, Poplar Bluff, Missouri, and another undisclosed location in Missouri. The first Big Whiskey's establishment was founded in downtown Springfield in 2006, and the company began offering franchising opportunities in late 2015.

"We are delighted to welcome Terry and Aimee as valued members of the Big Whiskey's family," said Paul Sundy, an original founder and Co-CEO Big Whiskey's. "Their impressive track record in the restaurant industry has left us deeply impressed. We believe they will be an exceptional addition to the Big Whiskey's brand." Sundy expressed the company's excitement about introducing Big Whiskey's to a second major metropolitan area in the Alabama market, following the remarkable success of the franchise in Hoover, Alabama.
